Yep, I would recommend a SIM over any training stand....I use Phoenix myself. Once you are IRL then just put some training gear on the skids and take it slowly.

Wow, haven't heard that word in about 5 years!

After NOT using mine (thank G'd) I threw it in the garbage.

THAT is a serious liability right there!

You can get information on the stand from http://www.helisafeproducts.com
This does not mean that I endorse it's use,only that I am able to read and understand your question and give you a usable response instead of a sim sales pitch.

That domain name is a total misnomer. I can't think of many things that would be more unsafe than those stands.

Now that I look more closely at it, I think the Op's post is a troll. His first post on RR EVER relates to a crazy product that could kill the pilot??? It just screams TROLL. Plus he hasn't been back since to reply...

more info on heli stand
I just joined runryder so that I could respond to some of the comments made about the helicopter stands. I enjoy reading the discussions but felt that I needed to add my own opinion here.

My first heli was supposed to be "ready to fly" from the factory, and it was only ready to fly into the ground. It was not properly factory set up as claimed and sold by the hobby shop and the manufacturer. After spending time and money on parts and rebuilding I decided to buy a Heli Safe stand, and then set up my heli properly. The stand is super quality and works great. It also gave me lots of safe time to get familiar with the controls. If you say your friend almost killed himself using this stand then my response is that he would have killed himself for sure by not using the stand. An out of control heli is safer on the stand than flying free to hit anything and anyone. You also do not crash so you save the repair costs. I think the stand is great for work and practice. It did the job for me. I will try and make a video so you can see just how good this stand really is.

Some people knock what they have never tried since the Simulator is so much easier to learn on. Telling someone to throw the stand in the trash isn't helpful as the poster asked for help with finding the instructions.

Forgive them ... different strokes for different folks. I tried a Whiteman many years back ... it was okay but it's not for everyone.

What you have is a WHITEMAN training stand, not WHITMAN.

As I recall, they were manufactured and sold out of Albuquerque, NM (or at least somewhere close to Albuquerque). They haven't been manufactured for years, and with good reason.

The advice to dump it is sound. It may have been a great tool for 1980, but some 29 years later, use a simulator.

For $129 plus $10 shipping, you can buy Phoenix,

http://www.phoenix-sim.com/purchase.htm

direct from the manufacturer and have it in about three days, FedEx'ed to your door. You use your own transmitter with this sim, and at $129 it is a STEAL. Every bit as good as RealFlight.

If you still need a training stand, then opt for a RotoPod or make your own out of fiberglass arrow shafts, some golf-ball sized wiffle balls, and a few other odds and ends. There are pictures of a homemade set of training gear in my gallery. A hula-hoop also works.

More on heli stands
You say the stands are no good? I really do not know what you people are talking about. I am using the "Heli-Safe" stand and it works great, gives me safe heli operating time, and all without crashing. I am new to helis, with only about 30 minutes operating time, and found the stand a great help. Take a look at my video...how can you say it is no good and dangerous? Have you ever seen one like this close up? I see more danger if the heli was flying free under my control(or lack of).

well congrats for you. But i still think your still way better off with a sim. That device may prevent crashes, but it also seems to introduce other forces on the heli that would got give it a realistic flight characteristic. i would like to see how well you do when you decide to stop using the stand.

just be done with it and get a sim.

more on the stands
Well, I never said I do not use a sim or that it is not needed. I am new to helis and know what works for me. The foam balls are virtually useless for protection unless you are flying level. I see the stand as "training wheels" on a bike. Why not use it? The sim is not real flying either. I have heard of heli flyers using the sim and still buying a stand....partly why I did in the first place. So I am using all the training stuff available. Why not....works for me, and I consider myself the average guy out there. Others should be aware of this option and decide for themselves...I did, and with no regrets.

Oh yes, I also needed the stand for making adjustments after all my crashes and repairs. It saved me from causing more damage.

Thanks for your thoughts.

Whiteman Training stand
Thanks , for the replys. Note I'm got this stand off ebay, not to train but to do something else. I'm still in the learning process and do have and use Realflight sim. However I was looking for something to use as a test stand. I'm into building and selling Hirobo Shuttles. The second one I built I had a friend test fly(well try anyway) so I could get some video of it to show. Well the rudder was out of adjustment and it spun out of control before he could land it. (CRASH) not to bad but lesson learned. I think the Whiteman Training Stand would be a good platform to Run , Test, and set rudder and tracking etc safely and no damage. I'm still looking for some guidence, instructions on its usage mainly the bolting of the heli on it. Thanks
